Labeling gluten in drug products is almost a reality - We need your help now!

I found out late Friday that labeling gluten in drug products is almost a reality, but your help is needed now more than ever!  
 
Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan and New York Congresswoman Nita Lowey have introduced legislation that will require drug manufacturers to label the source of drugs' inactive ingredients. This is huge! 

To move the bill ahead we need bipartisan cosponsors by May 8! 

All five of the national celiac organizations are united in support of this legislation. We need our congressional members to have that same shared voice and put forward a bipartisan message: The safety of our constituents matters. Gluten in medicine must be labeled so individuals and their healthcare providers can make an informed, safe choice.
